“Very nice tapas!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2014

I had a pre-theatre meal here in June 2014 and really enjoyed it. The staff were really friendly and attentive and we were stuffed after three tapas each. I was especially pleased as a vegetarian that there was no issue in ordering a veggie option of one of the meat dishes, and it was all really delicious. Definitely recommended for anyone going to the SECC complex!

“Fun, Exciting Food - Beautiful Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2014

This is the first time I have experienced tapas, and I'm certainly in favor now. Three of us ordered seven selections and could barely finish them! Our meal began with roasted whole almonds and green olives (not overly salty) and a selection of Iberian dried, cured meats that were bursting with flavor, including the shaved Iberian ham, which was buttery soft. Ask the manager for a wine recommendation. He paired our food with his best red wine, which was deeply flavored, mellow, and delectable. Our favorite tapas were the haggis and black pudding ones topped with quail's eggs, and also the chorizo, which made me remark that (despite the many times I have purchased chorizo in different markets) I had never had real chorizo before. We also enjoyed the full-flavored lentils, delicate white fish, paella, and soy-marinaded chicken tapas. Don't skip the desert here. We managed to try two: The sauteed pineapple on rum sponge cake was out of this world. The brownies were tender and crumbly (not annoyingly sticky) with just a bit of sweetness and a dark cocoa flavor. Then we capped the meal off with sweet liquors, including the surprising taste of Zoco, a cherry-herbal liquor that I swear I have found a new use for. I plan to empty the "Nyquil" cold medicine bottle and refill it with Zoco because it will do a better job of putting me to sleep with a smile, even when I have a cold. After our evening at Fino, we felt as though we literally had to roll home on our full, rounded bodies. It was an amazing experience.

Window seats give patrons a lovely view all around the perimeter of the restaurant. Don't be surprised if you find the restaurant either full or completely empty, as it is no indication of the quality of the food. Rather, the location near the Hydro, causes the Rotunda (and its three restaurants) to become brimful after events or leaves it lacking in attendance because it is located on a short, industrial street without through traffic.

“My first Spanish food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

Lovely tapas..which is actually small portions of food served in cute utensils. 3 dishes from choice of 12 items from the menu cost £9.90. The portions are small and if you have more people, you can try as many items on the menu.
I personally like the salad which is really yummy. Those who can drink in our group said the sangria was excellent!
.
We ate quite a bit and the bill came up to just £52 for 4 pax. Value for money.

“Delicious tapas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2014 via mobile

We visited very early evening, the food was great, and very well-presented. Excellent, friendly service. It was VERY quiet when we were there, though. Hope this is because it was so early on a rainy Monday evening, as this restaurant really deserves to be busy!
